beeing the author of the retro skin i'd like to know what those issues are so i can fix retro and also notify other skinners what to do
is there more to it then just making sure there is a compatible font included in the skin?

its just that i can't do any coding whatsoever
Quote:i posted a bugreport on this too:
the thing with xbmc is, in my experience, for gifs you have to have true transperancy. you cannot use a colorkey to get transparency. so fex in photoshop when creating the gif, use the layer transperancy as transperant parts. this has to do with the way xbmc interprets gifs which in some cases is done trough code that frodo made by reverse engineering gif-images (not sure if i explainded that right
). thats why i earlier was talking about how to control what images to be used. the images beeing downloaded might not be saved in the way xbmc want them. if you show me how you want the images to look i'll make them look that way in xbmc.
edit: come to think of it what i am talking about is the skin engine. python might have a whole different way of dealing with gifs. if so i probably can't help you...
